Three primary topographies for BPM Motors

Ferrite Magnet BPM
  • High efficiency compared to induction motors
  • Utilizes common ferrite magnet materials
  • Better for applications without high power density requirements, like pumps or air moving
IPM Flat Magnet
  • High efficiency and greater power density
  • Utilizes rare earth/neodymium magnet material
  • Most common BPM motor design in traction
IPM V-Magnets
  • Highest per density and efficiency
  • Extensive use of rare earth/neodymium magnet material
  • Utilized when very high power, compact motors are required


Three Cooling Methods

Air Cooling
  • Simplest installation in vehicle
  • Better for lower power applications
Water/Glycol Cooling
  • Improved heat removal enables use of smaller motors
  • Better for higher power applications
Oil Cooling
  • Suitable clean oil enables the highest level of heat removal and the most compact motors
  • Best for applications where an oil supply already exists

Wide Range of Supply Voltages


Used in a wide range of applications up to a power level of 15 to 20kW

48V to 120V

Used in higher power material handling applications

120V to 800V

Used in vehicles typically running power levels above 40 to 50kW
